Welcome to the Humanities department web page
Through engagement in literature, film,
culture, and writing, Humanities students develop the ability to apply creative
skills to problem-solving, analyzing and evaluating information, thinking
critically, and communicating effectively.
The Humanities Department is committed to
studying human creativity in all its forms and, in doing so, exploring the
human condition. Our department is founded on the idea that students can learn
much about peoples, cultures, or time periods by studying the creative work of
their fellow humans across multiple media and that such study fosters in
students the ability to learn about themselves and the world.

Many U.S. and global careers are open to students with a solid humanities foundation; strong writing, reading, critical thinking and research skills; and proficiency in one or more foreign languages.
